Daughter Miriam asked for Spanish flavored barbecue for her birthday feast. What came to my mind was a Pimentón de la Vera—Spanish smoked paprika—dry rub. In Spain this kind of seasoning would usually be used on a rib eye steak, but in California we loves us a tri-tip roast.

We have not had a Sunday feast in a couple weeks—travel and other events got in the way. As I was trying to come up with Sunday’s meal, Jan first suggested barbecued tri-tip and then Argentina. To Goggle I went, to discover just what that entailed.
Chimichurri is the South American sauce that is the go-together with grilled meat. Fresh herbs are minced with onions and garlic to make a piquant green sauce. Unlike similar sauces further north in South America, the Argentinean version does not usually use chilies. Looking at some recipes to get an idea of the range of ingredients, I came up with my own version.
